This ridiculously monikered band begin by weaving plinky, chiming, warm layers of sounds as befits the title of this EP. Plinky and lush as it is, I sort of spent the first five minutes of this CD waiting for some vocals to materialise, that might have made for a very nice experience indeed. Unfortunately, they never arrive, as the second song builds in a similar way, gradually adding strings and other sounds to the pretty guitar melodies. As a result, the music fails to transcend to anything other than pleasant instrumental indie, but this is an EP of four songs that rarely outstay their welcome and are difficult to say too many bad things about.
